Synopsis:

Snowbound!

“Red” Porter was a stranger they’d met on their ski weekend. But Ariel Munroe, Doug Mahr and his girlfriend Shannon Harper were grateful he was there when they set out for home on the icy roads. Thank heaven for Red! He spotted the hilltop lodge when they were stranded by the blizzard. He took charge when they stumbled into strange surroundings, scared, tired and looking for refuge. But can he save them when their refuge becomes a trap? Suddenly their hosts are acting very sinisterly. Doug’s car is gone. The phones are dead. And the house is full of guns. If they steal one, maybe they can escape! Until a shot is fired and the real terror begins…

My rating: ★★★☆☆

Red to the rescue! The near-stranger Red was the one who spotted the lodge when Ariel and her friends Doug and Shannon thought they were going to be stranded in the blizzard. It’s too bad the owners are f*cking insane!

Review: Truth or Dare (Fear Street #28) by R.L. Stine

Title: Truth or Dare

Synopsis:

The truth hurts.

What else is there to do, with all seven of them stuck in Dara Harker’s luxury ski condo? There are three guys and four girls—some of them friends, some nearly strangers—all of them trapped. A blinding blizzard has stilled the lifts, blocked the roads, and killed the phones.

A game, they think, will help them break the ice. Who will tell the truth? Who will take a dare? And how far will each of them go?

But then the game turns deadly. One of them, it seems, would rather kill than tell the truth.

And kill again.

My rating: ★★★★★

April, her best friend Jenny, and Jenny’s boyfriend Ken, are invited to Dara’s ski condo for a couple days of fun. There they run into some of Dara’s acquaintances. They then decide to play a little game to get to know each other, but a fun game of truth or dare turns deadly when one questions sets off one of the guests, leading them to murder. Dun, dun, DUN!

Review: Halloween Party (Fear Street #8) by R.L. Stine

Halloween Party (Fear Street, #8)
Title: Halloween Party

Series: Fear Street #8 (Can be read as a standalone)

Author: R.L. Stine

Publication date: September 1990

Published by: Simon Pulse

Synopsis:

Invitation to Terror

The invitation arrived in a black-bordered envelope. Inside, the card showed a coffin with the inscription “Reserved For You.” It was perfectly fitting for an all-night Halloween party on Fear Street. But Terry and his girlfriend Niki wondered why they had been invited. They barely knew Justine Cameron, the beautiful and mysterious transfer student who was throwing the party.

The party was well under way when the lights went out. That’s to be expected at a spooky Halloween party. But when the lights come back on, there was that boy on the floor with the knife in his back. Just a Halloween prank? Maybe. Maybe not.

For Terry and Niki the trick-or-treating has turned to terror. To their horror, they realize that someone at the costume party is dressed to kill!

My rating: ★★★★☆

A select few of kids are invited to the new girl’s Halloween party. They don’t know why they were selected in particular—this group of kids aren’t friends, they don’t even run in the same circles in school! But hey, it’s a party and they all don’t complain too much... until there’s a murder at the party. This is not what they had in mind when they came to the party. A party where no one had any idea why they, in particular, were chosen to attend. But I definitely had an idea. That particular plot twist did not surprise me once the reveal came. To be fair, I think I may have read this book this for back in middle school, but I don’t actually remember.

Synopsis:

At Shadyside High, cheerleading can be a scream!

For the first time since the original series, R.L. Stine brings back his most beloved characters—the cheerleaders of Shadyside High.

The cheerleading squad at Shadyside has always been strong, but now there are rumors that lack of funds may mean the end of cheerleading at Shadyside. That would be a shame for Heather Wyatt, who has just transferred from her old school, where she was a star, and is eager to join the squad. There’s only one other girl who stands in her way—rich, spoiled Devra Dalby, who is also trying out for the one open slot. The competition to join the squad is anything but friendly—and it ends in murder. Will Heather make the squad—if there's even a squad anymore—or will she end up dead?

Packed with screams and guaranteed to send a shiver up your spine, this is a terrifying installment in Stine's bestselling Fear Street series.

My rating: ★★★★☆

Gretchen just moved onto Fear Street... poor, poor Gretchen. Lol. At Shadyside High, Gretchen wants to try out for the cheerleading squad where there is only one spot open. She is up against the mean, rich girl Devra Dalby. But someone is out to get Gretchen. Could Devra actually be trying to stop her from stealing her spot on the team? But Gretchen won’t give up, even if she gets herself killed.
